Friend figured out out how to break out of a guest information login on a 
unix host that belonged to school system. I think it called more to show a 
document and you could do a !#/bin/sh and land in shell.

telnet archie.au

then would plug in known filenames of PC demos and mod files to find 
collections of them on public ftp sites.

Ahh ftp.funet.fi

Then would add them to my BBS after ftp and then running sz to zmodem 

The downside was the unix host had crappy modems. No HST Dual Standard. 
Maybe it was 9600 not 144.
